Sun Yue signed to multiyear contract - what a joke
6 ft 9 'point guard' Sun Yue has signed a contract with the LA Lakers. I see this as not much more than a publicity stunt to generate money off jersey sales and try to engage LA's Chinese community. Remember Yuta Tabuse? There was a ton of publicity for a 5 ft 7 guy who played 2 games for Phoenix and came out of a second tier college. Even though I think half the Aussie team would be in the NBA were they Chinese or Japanese, i'd like to see the NBL sign Asian players even if purely as a publicity stunt, I suggest however (money aside) that even if Tabuse, Wang Zhi Zhi, Bateer, Liu Wei or Sun Ming Ming played in the NBL they would not have a great impact on the court.
